My research focuses on quantifying macroevolutionary patterns in the fossil record, and reconstructing/understanding evolutionary dynamics within the context of mass extinctions. I am particularly interested in methods for quantifying morphological variation in the fossil taxa and how this variation relates to time (time-series context) and evolutionary history (phylogenetic context).
I've had the pleasure of working on a variety of organismal systems, including (but not necessarily limited to) non-avian dinosaurs, Permian synapsids, and sharks, but enjoy working with multiple aspects of the vertebrate fossil record.
Current ongoing research projects include:
